Peering Policy

General guidelines

The peering with another Internet service provider (in the following the 'ISP') shall be in the interest of ImproWare AG and the ISP. A measure of interest can be the amount of traffic exchanged between ImproWare AG and the ISP, in particular traffic which would otherwise be exchanged over expensive international links.
The bandwidth of the connection between ImproWare AG and the ISP shall not be a bottleneck.

Network Operation

The peers will grant each other's network operation centers access to a traceroute gateway.

ImproWare AG applies ingress filters towards its customers, which prevent the injection of packets with spoofed source addresses. It is expected that ISP take similar precautions to protect its own and their peers' networks.

ImproWare AG  reserves the right to implement packet filters on its border routers to protect customers from malicious traffic, misconfiguration, and abuse of network capacity.

ISP's technical staff for network operations shall be reachable by e-mail during office hours. Appropriate
contact information will be made available among the parties.

The peers mutually agree to the publication of traffic statistics concerning the peering connection.

The peers agree to adapt the capacity of the connection(s) over time so that the offered load can be handled at low packet drop rates.

Peering Points

Peerings are welcome at our facilities in Basel or at the TIX, Zuerich. Other peering points on request.

Routing Configuration

The peering allows exchange of traffic between defined sets of IP networks. The
networks of ImproWare AG are described in the RIPE database (AS macro AS-IMPNET).

ISP's set of IP networks must be defined in the same way (RIPE database).

BGP-4 is used to exchange routing information between the peers.

The peering does not include the right to transit traffic from ISP to third ISPs' networks through ImproWare AG. The peers must not use static routes to point to each other's network, except where necessary for setting up the BGP connection.
